College offers: 

*Over 50 programs leading to associate degrees or certificates in 
vocational and technical fields and in the liberal arts and sciences. -

"Courses tailored to meet the needs of business and industry for 
employee training. 

*A broad range of avocational courses offered both on-campus and at 
off-campus sites. 

Backed by a tradition of excellence in technical education, the 
College has gained a national reputation for the diversity and quality 
of its occupational programs. Of the more than 4000 students a year 
enrolled in associate degree and certificate programs, about 92 
percent are in a technical or occupational area. 

The College's programs are housed on the central campus in 
Williamsport, the Earth Science Center in Allenwood/Montgomery, the

Montoursville, and the North Campus, located near Wellsboro. Courses 
are also offered at locations throughout the College's service area. 

This fall, the College is opening its new Advanced Technology and 
Health Sciences Center to its first classes of students. This building 
will expand our ability to provide training in a "new generation" of 
technology— including fiber optics, automated manufacturing, robotics 
and laser technology. Our progress — in programming and campus 
development — reflects our commitment to meeting the emerging needs 
of our students and the region we serve.

2-ADMISSION 



ADMISSION 



Admission Policy 

At The Williamsport Area Community College we are 
committed to serving the educational needs of 
students from all walks of life. The College operates 
under an "open-door" admissions policy and is open 
to anyone with a high school diploma or its 
equivalent. Anyone age 18 or older who does not 
have a high school diploma or the equivalent may be 
admitted as a "special student." 




Acceptance to several programs of study is based 
upon the applicant's meeting the requirements 
(including necessary academic skills and 
prerequisites) of the specific program of study. The 
College reserves the right to deny admission or 
readmission to any student if, in the opinion of 
College authorities, his/her admission is not in the 
best interest of the student or the College. 

The Williamsport Area Community College offers 
equal opportunity for admission without regard to 
age, race, color, creed, sex, national origin, handicap, 
veteran status, or political affiliation. 

The College will provide opportunities to develop the 
basic skills necessary to enroll in associate degree 
and certificate courses to those who demonstrate 
such needs on the College's placement tests. 



Acceptance 

The Williamsport Area Community College will 
accept students based on the date the applicant's 
file (i.e., application for admission, application fee, 
transcripts/GED, and, when appropriate, testing 
material) is completed in the Admissions Office. 



Admission Procedure 

All graduates of accredited secondary schools in the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are eligible for 
admission to the College as regular students. 
Admission into a specific program is based upon 
evidence of scholastic readiness for the program. 

1. Application and Application Fee 

All applicants to degree and certificate programs 
must submit an "Application for Admission" form 
together with a non-refundable application fee. 
This fee is charged only once. The Director of 
Admissions, upon written request from a 
counselor, state agency, etc. has the authority to 
waive the fee when it can be determined that the 
fee causes financial hardship to an individual. 

2. High School Graduation

score average of 45. Under special circumstances, 
applicants 17 years of age may be considered for 
admission with a minimum GED test score average 
of 45. 

d. Anyone age 18 or older who has not met the 
requirements of sections a., b., or c. above may be 
considered for admission into a program as a

appropriate aptitudes and abilities to enter the 
College. 

e. Early Admissions: Applicants who have 
completed the eleventh grade at an approved or 
accredited high school may be considered for 
admission as a full-time or part-time student 



ADMISSION-3 



during the senior year of high school provided: 1.) 
The chief administrative officer of the high school 
must submit a letter indicating approval of the 
student's early admission to the Admissions 
Office. That written approval, plus the applicant's 
application fee and transcript, must be provided to 
the Admissions Office before consideration shall 
be given the application. 2.) If denied admission as 
an early admissions student, the applicant shall be 
automatically considered for admission at the end 
of his/her senior year. 3.) All fees will be the 
responsibility of the student. 

f. Accelerated Program: A high school student 
having completed two years of high school beyond 
grade nine may enroll in the accelerated program 
at The Williamsport Area Community College in 
lieu of the senior year of high school. The program 
begins in the fall semester. When the student 
completes 30 or more semester hours with a 2.00 
("C") grade point average or above, a high school 
diploma would be awarded by the appropriate 
school district. 

Students entering the Associate of Arts programs 
must have a 3.50 high school grade point average 
(GPA). For entrance into the Associate of Applied 
Science, Associate of Applied Arts, or Certificate 
programs, students must have a minimum of a 
2.50 GPA with a minimum of two semesters with 
a GPA of 3.00 in anticipated major or related 
areas. 

To be accepted, in addition to the normal 
admission requirements students must have: 1.) A 
recommendation from his/her high school guidance 
counselor. 2.) Approval of his/her high school 
principal. 3.) A signed permission form from 
parents/legal guardians. 4.) Student/parent

Admissions. 

The application fee will be waived by the College. 
Tuition and related fees will be paid by the school 
district. ALL MATERIALS WILL BE COORDINATED 
THROUGH THE COLLEGE'S SECONDARY 
VOCATIONAL OFFICE. 

g. Dual Enrollment: Qualified full-time high school 
students may enroll part-time in College credit 
classes. College courses taken can be counted 
toward high school graduation with the school's 
approval. Students must be in the tenth, eleventh 
or twelfth grade and have a 2.50 minimum high 
school GPA to be eligible. 

The same admission requirements, payment of 
fees and processing of the application procedures 
outlined in the accelerated program apply here. 

h. Credit in Escrow: High school students who 
have completed two years beyond the ninth grade 



with a GPA of 2.50 may enroll part-time at The 
Williamsport Area Community College. They can 
take up to 11 credit hours, as determined by the 
Admissions Office, based upon the student's 
ability and required high school time. The same 
admission requirements, payment of fees and 
processing of the application procedures outlined 
in the accelerated program apply here. 



3. Placement Examinations 

To insure that applicants have the entry-level skills 
needed for their programs, all students are required 
to take the College's placement examinations. The 
College uses these examinations to assess 
applicants' skills in math, English and reading. 
Based on the results of their tests, students will 
be placed in the appropriate math, English and 
reading courses. The College reserves the right to 
recommend another program or require 
developmental courses if the test results indicate 
that an applicant does not have the required 
academic entry skills. Applicants who have 
demonstrated academic proficiency through either 
previous college course work or College Boards 
(SAT or ACT) may be exempt from testing. 



4. Health Records Requirement 

A student who may need special accommodations 
due to a physical or mental disability/handicap 
must submit his/her medical history on a health 
record card. (Health record cards are available from 
the College's Admissions Office.) The health card 
is completed during placement testing. The card 
must be received before the student can begin 
classes. A disability or handicap will not be used 
to deny a person admission to the College. 



5. Tuition Deposit and Tuition Payment 

All full-time applicants who have been accepted as 
degree-seeking or certificate-seeking students 
must submit a $100 tuition deposit. The tuition 
deposit will be credited to the student's tuition for 
the first semester. If the student does not enroll 
and notifies the College by July 1 for the fall 
semester and December 1 for the spring semester, 
the College will refund 80 percent of the tuition 
deposit. 

The tuition deposit will hold a space in class until 
the announced deadline. Students who have not 
met their total financial obligations for the 
semester by the deadline will forfeit their class 
space. As a result, someone from the College's 
waiting list may take their space in the program. 



4-ADMISSION

public charge. Failure to provide this information 
may result in the denial of the applicant's 
application for an "F I" student visa. 

3. All international students who are accepted must 
take the College's placement tests. Placement into 
the appropriate level of courses will be determined 
by the tests. International students must arrange 
to be on campus approximately one week prior to 
registration for the term in which they are

result in denial of acceptance into programs. 

4. International students must become familiar with 
the regulations of the Immigration and 
Naturalization Service and assume responsibility 
for complying with test regulations. 



d. Applicants to the Radiography program are 
required to have a hospital observation.

Assistant and Dental Hygiene are required to have 
additional standardized tests beyond the College's 
placement tests. 



Former students who wish to reenroll must apply for 
readmission through the Admissions Office. They do 
not need to submit an application fee. They may be 
required to submit a health records card. (See Health 
Records Requirement on page 3.) 



f. Applicants to Automated Manufacturing

first semester Machinist courses. 



Admission of International Students 



1. A student who: 

a. reenrolls in the same program in which he/she 
was last enrolled, and 

b. reenrolls less than two years after he/she last 
attended the College, 



The Williamsport Area Community College believes 
that the presence of international students on 
campus will enrich the educational environment for 
all students. The College is authorized under federal 
law to enroll non-immigrant alien students on "F-l" 
student visas. An "Application for Admission" and all 
supporting documents must be received in the 
Admissions Office at least two weeks prior to the 
day of late registration for the term in which the 
student plans to enroll. 



may be required to meet graduation requirements 
in effect at the time the student was originally 
enrolled. 

2. A student who: 

a. reenrolls in the same program in which he/she 
was last enrolled, and 

b. reenrolls two or more years after he/she last 
attended the College, 



All transcripts, test scores, and other credentials 
become the property of the College and will not be 
returned or transferred to another institution. 

In addition to the College's general admission 
requirements, international students must fulfill the 
following requirements: 

1. All international students whose native language is 
not English are required to take the Test of English 
as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). 



must meet current graduation requirements. All 
course work previously completed will be reviewed 
on a course by course basis to determine whether 
it meets current graduation requirements. All 
courses completed will remain on the student's 
transcript. Only credits for courses which meet the 
current program requirements will be used in 
calculating the student's cumulative grade point 
average. 

3. If a student reenrolls in a program different from 
the one in which he/she was last enrolled, each 



ADMISSION-5 



course previously taken will be evaluated to 
determine whether it meets the requirements of 
the new program. Only credits for courses which 
meet the requirements of the current program will 
be used in calculating the student's cumulative 
grade point average. However, all courses 
completed will remain on the student's transcript. 
Students reenrolling in a new program are required 
to meet the graduation requirements for the new 
program in effect at the time they reenroll. 

Special circumstances may be appealed to the 
Dean of Academic Affairs or his/her designee, who 
may waive the conditions given above. 



Change of Program 

A change of program may be made any time during 
the official drop/add period of a semester. Changes 
made after that time will be effective the following 
semester. Currently enrolled students who wish to 
change from one program of study to another must 
follow the steps below: 

1. Complete an "Admissions Application" and submit 
it to the Admissions Office. Acceptance into the 
new program will be based on availability of 
openings in the program. 

2. Complete a "Curriculum Change" form, obtain all 
required signatures and submit to the Student 
Records Office. 



When a student changes his/her program, all credits 
earned in the prior program will be evaluated for 
transfer to the new program by the Register. All 
courses will continue to appear on the student's 
transcript. Only courses applicable to the new 
program will be used to calculate the student's new 
cumulative grade point average. 



Transfer Students 

Students from other colleges who wish to transfer to 
The Williamsport Area Community College must 
follow the procedure below: 

1. Complete steps listed under Admission Procedure, 
(see page 2) with the exception of "High School 
Graduation." 

2. Ask all college(s) previously attended to send an 
official transcript to The Williamsport Area 
Community College Admissions Office. The 
College may also request a high school transcript. 

3. Provide course descriptions or a college catalog to 
the Admissions Office for use in evaluating 
courses completed at another institution. 



Transfer Credit 

Transfer credit includes: credit for courses earned at 
another institution, college credit earned before high 
school graduation, service credit, United States 
Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) credit, and credit 
earned through the College Level Examination 
Program (CLEP). 

A maximum of 30 transfer credits may be applied 
toward a degree or certificate. Courses to be 
considered for transfer must have been completed 
with a grade of "C" or better. However, if a student 
earns a cumulative "C" average or better in 
sequential courses (for example, English 1 and 
English 2) an exception may be made based on the 
evaluation of the courses. Courses taken more than 
two years before the student enrolls at The 
Williamsport Area Community College may be 
evaluated (on a course-by-course basis) to determine 
if they are equivalent to courses currently required in 
the student's program. A copy of the evaluation of 
transfer credit will be sent to the student. 

All transfer credit will appear on the student's 
transcript after the student successfully completes 
one semester of academic work at The Williamsport 
Area Community College. Transfer credit will appear 
on the transcript with credit value only. Transfer 
students will enroll without any cumulative grade 
point average. A student must be enrolled in courses 
at The Williamsport Area Community College for at 
least the last 12 credit hours of his/her program. 
Requirements for the evaluation of different forms of 
transfer credit are listed below. 

1. Transfer from Another Institution 

All credits earned at a previously attended 
institution(s) will be evaluated for transfer credit. 
The student must send The Williamsport Area 
Community College Admissions Office an official 
catalog description of each course to be evaluated 
and a description of the grading codes (if the 
grade codes are not defined on the transcript) 
from each institution from which courses are to be 
evaluated. These materials must consist of either 
of the following: the institution's catalog or a 
photocopy of the course descriptions and the 
grade codes description taken from the 
institution's catalog. 

2. College Credit Earned Before High School 
Graduation 

College credit earned before high school 
graduation will be evaluated only if the college 
where the work was taken issues an official 
college transcript. Students who have earned 
college credit before graduation from high school 
must follow the procedure defined under "Transfer 
from Another Institution." 



6-ADMISSION 



3. Service Credit 



Transfer Of Credits To Four-Year Institutions 



Veterans who have served 12 consecutive months 
of active military duty will be granted credit for 
health and'or physical education (if required in 
their program). The student must submit a copy of 
his/her report of separation (DD-214) and complete 
a waiver for physical education with the Health 
Sciences Office. 

4. United States Armed Forces Institute Credit 
(USAFI) 

The College may grant credit for USAFI credit. An 
official transcript must be mailed directly from the 
USAFI in Madison, Wisconsin to the College's 
Admissions Office. Credit will be granted for those 
courses which are substantially comparable to 
courses offered at The Williamsport Area 
Community College. If the student's program 
includes electives, elective credit will be granted 
for those courses which are not comparable. 

5. College Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

The College will examine CLEP results and may 
grant college credit to individuals who score at 
least in the fiftieth percentile rank on the CLEP 
exam. The student must provide an official copy of 
his/her CLEP scores to the College's Admissions 
Office. The College will determine whether credit 
earned through CLEP will be issued for required 
credit courses or as elective credit. 



Non-Degree Students 

A student who does not wish to pursue a degree or 
certificate program is required to have a program 
emphasis. This will be based upon the courses a 
student elects to take and the future educational 
goals of the student. Such students are permitted to 
select courses without regard to degree or certificate 
requirements. If at a later date, a non-degree student 
desires to enroll in a specific degree or certificate 
program, an application for admission to the program, 
together with any other required credentials, must be 
submitted to the Admissions Office. 

Non-degree students are not eligible for financial aid. 
They are permitted to schedule classes on a first- 
come/first-served basis (after currently enrolled 
students have been given the opportunity to schedule 
classes). Non-degree students must complete an 
"Admissions Application" form the first time they 
schedule credit classes, but are not required to pay 
the application fee. 



The Williamsport Area Community College has 
established formal agreements with Cheyney, 
Kutztown, Lincoln, Lock Haven, Mansfield, and 
Millersville Universities in Pennsylvania. These 
agreements transfer the Associate of Arts at The 
Williamsport Area Community College, under general 
conditions, to these institutions with junior-level 
status. 

Williamsport Area Community College graduates 
earning Associate of Applied Science or Associate of 
Applied Arts degrees can often transfer significant 
portions of their A.A.S. or A. A. A. program of study to 
a four-year college or university. 

The College has a formal agreement with Lock Haven 
University which recognizes A.A.S. and A.A.A. 
degrees from The Williamsport Area Community 
College as part of a Bachelor of Science in General 
Studies-Technology Management degree. Students 
who complete this combined program can develop 
technical career skills at Williamsport Area 
Community College and complete advanced business 
and management education through Lock Haven 
University. Many of the Lock Haven University 
courses are available in the evening at The 
Williamsport Area Community College campus. B.S. 
degrees with specialities in areas other than 
management are under discussion between the 
College and Lock Haven University. 

If you would like detailed information about 
transferability of specific courses or programs, please 
consult your division director. 



Housing 

Students are responsible for making their own 
housing arrangements. The Admissions Office, 
Academic Center, Room 104, maintains a list of area 
housing facilities for men and women. The College 
mails housing lists after a student pays his/her tuition 
deposit. Fall listings are mailed in March and January 
listings are mailed in November. Prospective students 
are urged to make arrangements for housing as soon 
as possible after being admitted. A brochure 
containing guidelines on obtaining housing is 
available. The College does not sponsor, approve, 
disapprove, evaluate or supervise the listed facilities. 
Any agreement for renting is solely between the 
landlord and student. 



Health Services

nurse and is open Monday through Friday from 8 
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. during the fall and spring 
semesters. First aid, health counseling, and

enrolled for 12 or more credit-hours per semester. 
However, tuition and related fees are based solely on 
the number of credits for which you are enrolled, as 
described below. 



Application Fee 

Applicants for status as full-time students in degree 
or certificate programs must include a non-refundable 
$15 application fee with their "Admission 
Application." You are required to pay this non- 
refundable fee only once. 



Tuition Deposit 

All applicants who have been accepted as full-time 
degree or certificate students must pay a $100 
tuition deposit to hold a class reservation in the first 
semester for which they have applied. 

If you enroll at the designated time, the deposit will 
be credited to your tuition for the first semester. If 
you do not enroll and notify the College by the pre- 
determined deadline, the College will refund 80 
percent of the tuition deposit. 



8-TUITION AND FEES 



Tuition and Related Fees-1987-88* 



4. Out-of-State Resident 



Tuition and related fees are governed by your area of 
residence and are based on a per credit hour charge. 
To calculate your tuition and fees for one semester, 
multiply the number of credits for which you are 
enrolled by the total per credit charge under the 
appropriate residence category. The four categories 
of residence and the tuition and fees for each are: 

1. Sponsor of The Williamsport Area Community 
College 

A sponsor district is one which contributes to the 
financial support of the College. If you reside in 
the City of Williamsport, which sponsors The 
Williamsport Area Community College, you must 
secure a Certificate of Sponsorship in order to be 
eligible for sponsoring district tuition rates. The 
form should be mailed to the Bursar's Office after 
you have been accepted and as soon as possible 
prior to registration. 

PER CREDIT HOUR CHARGE 
Tuition $51.25 

Service Fee none 

Activity Fee $ 1.25 

TOTAL $52.50 

2. District Sponsoring Another Community College 

If you reside in a district which sponsors another 
Pennsylvania community college, you must obtain 
permission, IN WRITING, from the Board of 
Trustees of the other community college in order 
to qualify for sponsoring district tuition and fees. If 
you do not obtain permission, you will be charged 
the same tuition and fees as non-sponsor 
students. 

PER CREDIT HOUR CHARGE 
Tuition $51.25 

Service Fee $ 8.65 

Activity Fee $ 1.25 

TOTAL $61.15 



Out-of-state students will pay the following tuition 
and fees: 

PER CREDIT HOUR CHARGE 
Tuition $153.70 

Service Fee $ 17.30 

Activity Fee $ 1.25 

TOTAL $172.25 

*Tuition and Fees are subject to change without 
notice. 



Deferred Payment 

The College shall not knowingly accept a partial 
payment from any student except as required for 
tuition deposits, financial aid plans, or within the 
guidelines established by the Board of Trustees' 
policy for deferred fee status (given below). 

Any student whose fee is in arrears after the first 
day of classes shall be subject to a $20 deferred 
processing fee. 

Any student whose fees are not satisfied (paid in full 
or deferred under the official deferred payment 
program) by the first day of class is considered un- 
registered and will not be allowed to remain in class 
until satisfactory financial arrangements are made 
with the office of the Bursar. Nullification or 
adjustment of financial aid awards shall not alter the 
student's obligation to complete installment 
payments to the College. 

Students who fail to meet their financial obligations 
under this plan may be administratively withdrawn. 
Such termination will not cancel the student's 
financial obligations to the College. Students 
participating in an installment plan will have their 
grades and transcripts held until their accounts are 
settled. 



3. Non-Sponsoring Pennsylvania District 

If you reside in a Pennsylvania district which does 
not sponsor a Pennsylvania community college, 
you will pay the following tuition and fees: 

PER CREDIT HOUR CHARGE 
Tuition $102.50 

Service Fee $ 8.65 

Activity Fee $ 1.25 

TOTAL $112.40 



Books and Supplies 

Expenses for books and supplies will vary 
considerably from program to program. The College 
tries to keep expenses as low as possible by 
operating the College Bookstore on a low-cost basis. 
For full-time students the cost for books and supplies 
can be as high as $300 per semester. 



Tools 



When you have been accepted in a particular 
program, the Admissions Office will provide you with 
a list of required tools. We recommend that you do 
not buy any tools or protective clothing for any 



TUITION AND FEES-9 



course before attending the first class. Tool costs 
vary greatly, depending on your program. Prospective 
students should contact the Admissions Office for a 
list of estimated tool costs for each program. The 
tools will be your personal property. In many cases, 
students will use these tools throughout their 
careers. 



If a graduating student does not wish to receive an 
engraved certificate or diploma, he/she will not be 
charged the graduation fee but must still file a 
petition. (See Petition to Graduate on page 132.) 



Refunds 



Transcripts 

The student's grade report is an unofficial transcript 
(identical to the official transcript, but without the 
official seal) which shows all course work completed 
by the student. Students may use their grade report 
when an unofficial transcript is needed. Official 
transcripts are only those transcripts sent to another 
institution, agency, or employer. 

Students will be charged $1.00 for each additional 
transcript. All requests for additional transcripts must 
be submitted in writing to the Student Records 
Office. The request must contain the following 
information: the student's name while attending The 
Williamsport Area Community College, the student's 
address and social security number, the dates of 
enrollment, the name of the program(s) in which the 
student was enrolled, and a complete address to 
which the transcript is to be sent. If the transcript is 
sent to the student or to his/her address, it is 
considered an unofficial copy. 



Graduation Fees 

Any students who wish to receive an engraved 
diploma or certificate when they graduate must pay a 
$5.00 fee when they petition to graduate. If a 
student orders a diploma or certificate after the 
advertised date for ordering a diploma (i.e., two 
months prior to the date of graduation), the student 
must pay a special processing fee of $10.00. 



Students who terminate enrollment at the College or 
withdraw from a course(s) may obtain a refund or 
partial refund of tuition, service fees and activity fees 
if they follow the procedures below. 

If a student finds it necessary to terminate or to 
withdraw from the College for any reason, the 
student must: 

1. Officially terminate or withdraw by presenting to 
the Student Records Office a signed, properly 
executed "Student Status Change" form(s). 

2. Satisfactorily account for all property issued by the 
College. 

3. Settle all outstanding College obligations. 

No refunds will be issued unless a student completes 
the above steps and initiates them within the proper 
time frame. 

Charges for tuition and fees are refundable upon 
proper official withdrawal or termination from the 
College. Application fees are not refundable. In order 
to obtain a refund, the "Request for Refund" form 
and the necessary "Student Status Change" forms 
must be submitted at the same time. 

Refunds of tuition and fees will be made according 
to the following schedule for fall and spring 
semesters: 

Prior to the first day of classes 100% Refund 

First day through third week 70% Refund 

After third week of classes No Refund 




Refunds will be made according to the following 
schedule for the summer semesters and for courses 
that do not meet for the entire semester (for 
example, some weekend college classes and "mini- 
courses," eight-week courses, etc.). 

Prior to the first day of classes 100% Refund 

First day through 20% of total 70% Refund 

instructional hours 
After 20% of total instructional hours No Refund 

For additional information on termination and 
withdrawal policies, please see "Terminations, 
Withdrawals, and Refunds" in the Academic 
Information section of this Catalog. 



10-FINANCIAL AID 



FINANCIAL AID 



Recognizing that the cost of education is often 
greater than the student and his/her family can afford 
without help, the Financial Aid Office helps students 
obtain financial assistance through a variety of aid 
programs: 

Grants 

Scholarships 

Loans 

College Work-Study Program 

Veteran's Benefits 

Vocational Rehabilitation Sponsorship 

Part-Time Employment 

Every student is encouraged to thoroughly explore 
each of the above programs, and to contact the 
Financial Aid Office for assistance in obtaining and 
completing applications for aid. 



Employment 

Students interested in part-time employment other 
than the College Work-Study programs should 
contact the Advisement and Career Services Center 
for further information. 



Special Attention 

Deadlines 

Students who want the fullest consideration for all 
awards should have all needed application materials 
complete and on file in the Financial Aid Office as 
soon as possible. For the 1988-89 year, for example, 
completed applications for some forms of aid should 
be filed by March 1, 1988. Applications received after 
this date will be processed and students filing late 
will be considered for aid, but only after other 
applications received by the deadline have been 
received and awards made. 

An exception to the above deadline is made for the 
Guaranteed Student Loan Program. Loan applications 
may be submitted at any time during the year, but 
should be filed early enough to allow for the six to 
eight week processing time prior to loan approval and 
release of funds to the applicant. 

Need Analysis Forms 

To determine a student's financial eligibility for 
awards, especially Supplemental Grants and Work- 
Study awards, a review of the family financial 
situation must be completed. 



The College uses the Pennsylvania Higher Education 
Assistance Agency system for need analysis 
purposes. These forms can be obtained from the 
College's Financial Aid Office, high schools and the 
state agency. 



Policy on Satisfactory Academic Progress 

This policy applies to all students receiving financial 
aid from federal or state student assistance 
programs: 

Federal Programs (Pell/SEOG/College Work 
Study/Guaranteed Student Loan/Plus Loan): 

A full-time student who receives aid from the Pell, 
SEOG, or College Work Study programs must make 
satisfactory academic progress in order to continue 
to be eligible for aid. Students shall be considered to 
be making satisfactory progress if, based on 
academic achievement, the College allows them to 
continue their enrollment, provided that they 
successfully complete at least 24 credits by the end 
of the first academic year. 

Students whose cumulative grade point average falls 
below 2.00 will be placed on academic probation, 
and a decision on their continued enrollment will be 
made by the Probation Committee. Students on 
academic probation may continue to receive financial 
aid, provided they successfully complete at least 24 
credits by the end of the first academic year. 

After receiving aid for the fourth semester of a two- 
year program or the second semester of a one-year 
program the student will not be eligible for additional 
aid until after graduation from the program. In 
addition, any student who changes programs two or 
more times will be determined ineligible pending 
further review. 

Any part-time student who receives aid and who 
fails, withdraws from, or receives an incomplete in 
two or more courses in which he/she was enrolled 
during an academic year (or the equivalent) shall be 
ineligible for further aid until he/she completes 
courses equivalent in credits to the number which 
were not successfully completed. 

Credits earned through advanced placement or life 
experience and external transfer credits may be used 
to meet graduation requirements, but may not be 
included in the number needed for satisfactory 
progress for financial aid purposes. 

Students determined to be ineligible for additional aid 
may appeal this determination by writing to the 
Director of Financial Aid or his/her designee, stating 
the basis for appeal. Exceptions may be made based 
on extenuating circumstances including, but not 
limited to, documented illness, change of program or 



FINANCIAL AID-11 



the required completion of Developmental Studies 
courses. The Director or designee will inform the 
student in writing of the decision, specifying the 
duration of time or other conditions under which an 
exception has been made, or explaining the reason 
for denying the appeal and detailing the actions 
necessary for the student to regain eligibility. A 
student may request a review of the decision in a 
meeting of the student, Director of Financial Aid and 
the Dean of Student Services. 

State Program (PHEAA): 

PHEAA regulations require that for each year of a 
PHEAA grant, a student must successfully complete 
24 credits, otherwise the student will be ineligible to 
receive additional grants. Appeals must be made 
directly to PHEAA. This policy is subject to revision 
by PHEAA. 




Amnesty (For Federal Programs) 

For returning students who have not been enrolled 
during the past five years, prior academic 
performance will not be considered when satisfactory 
academic progress is measured.

training of veterans. The Financial Aid Office provides 
counseling and assistance to veterans. All veterans 
must register in the Financial Aid Office in order to 
collect G.I. benefits or to initiate action concerning 
the Veterans' Administration. Veterans should bring a 
copy of their DD 214 and, when applicable, their 
marriage certificate and children's birth certificates, 
to the Financial Aid Office for their first interview. 
The Financial Aid Office maintains a complete supply 
of forms for such purposes. 

The College does not handle advance payment 
requests.

DEGREES 

AND 

PROGRAMS 



The Williamsport Area Community College is proud 
to offer flexible scheduling that allows all segments 
of our community — including employed persons and 
others with regular daytime responsibilities — the 
opportunity for education. 

Along with regular daytime and evening classes, the 
College also offers special program options entitled 
Minimester and Weekend College. These options are 
described here. 



MINIMESTER 

Minimester is a new mid-semester programming 
initiative developed to meet the needs of today's 
active individuals who want a maximum return for 
the time and money they invest in education. 

Short-term, intensive study classes make minimester 
the perfect choice for busy men and women who 
want to continue their studies on a college level. 
Courses cover a variety of subjects, ranging from 
microcomputers to human services. Class schedules 
vary and tuition is based on a per credit charge. 

For more information on the minimester programming 
initiative, please contact the College's Office of 
Admissions. 



WEEKEND COLLEGE 

The Weekend College program offers students the 
opportunity to take associate degree courses on the 
weekends. Courses available through the program 
vary from semester to semester, but usually include a 
variety of courses in business and computer 
technology plus selected courses in the liberal arts 
and the technologies. 

Weekend College also offers a number of scheduling 
options, including: 

Saturday classes which meet three hours a week 
for 16 weeks. 

Concentrated study courses which meet on Friday 
evenings, on Saturdays, and on Sunday mornings 
for four consecutive weekends. 



Courses which meet every third weekend on 
Friday evenings, on Saturdays, and on Sundays.

ASSOCIATE DEGREES 

The Williamsport Area Community College awards 
three types of associate degrees. Associate degree 
programs can help you prepare for employment or 
serve as the basis for additional education. Associate 
degree programs require a minimum of 60 credits. 

The Associate of Applied Arts (AAA) is offered in 
Advertising Art and Mass Communications, which 
has emphases in Print Media, Electronic Media, and 
Public Relations. These programs offer students the 
opportunity to gain the technical and professional 
skills needed for employment and to prepare for 
transfer to a four-year college. 

The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree 
programs offer students the opportunity to gain the 
technical and occupational skills needed for 
employment. Many four-year colleges accept all or a 
substantial portion of AAS degree credits as part of a 
bachelor's degree. 

The Associate of Arts (AA) degree programs are 
designed to parallel the first two years of a liberal 
arts education at a four-year college. Credits earned 
can usually be transferred as the first two years of a 
bachelor's degree. 



Associate of Applied Arts 

The Associate of Applied Arts programs offer 
knowledge and skills in programs emphasizing 
communications. Each program has prescribed 
courses that you must complete in order to graduate.

TECHNOLOGY STUDIES (TS) 

Associate Degree 



Technology Studies is a flexible program — designed 
especially for, but not limited to — people currently 
employed in industry or business. Course selection is based 
almost entirely upon the goals of the individual student. As 
many as 30 credits may be awarded through advanced 
placement, credit by examination, or credit for work/life 
experience, thus reducing the number of courses to be 
completed on campus. Most students will complete this 
program on a part-time basis; therefore, a number of 
specialized courses will be offered in a rotating sequence 
to provide increased scheduling opportunites. 

The minimum requirements for the Associate Degree in

30 elective credits must be taken in technical career or 
vocational courses which are applicable to the 
Associate of Applied Science degree. Elective courses 
should be selected primarily on the basis of the 
student's vocational goals. The electives enable the 
student to select those vocational and/or general 
education courses which best meet his/her career, 
professional, and personal objectives. 

4. Students must complete a planned educational program 
of studies. This plan should be developed in 
conjunction with an advisor and be filed with the

Pre Medical Emphasis 

The Pre-Medical Emphasis offers preparation for careers in 
medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, veterinary 
medicine, chiropractic, other health professions, and 
scientific research. The program also meets the needs of 
students interested in fields like chemistry, physics and 
biology. Because of the rigorous and time-consuming 
nature of the medical programs — which include much 
training in clinical laboratories and patient-related 
experiences — students should have aptitudes in 
mathematics and science. Laboratory experience and 
manual dexterity are also important. 



Pre-Law Emphasis 

The student who plans to enter law school should develop 
a program which includes a broad base of liberal studies. 
The Association of American Law Schools recommends 
that programs emphasize the following: 

1. Comprehension and expression in words 

2. Critical understanding of human institutions and values 

3. Creative power in thinking 

The program below is based on these recommendations. 
Modifications in this program should be planned in 
conjunction with the prelaw advisor.

INDIVIDUAL STUDIES PROGRAM 

Individual Studies is the most flexible program offered by 
the College. It is designed for the student who wants to 
explore a number of careers — people interested in personal 
enrichment — someone who wants to prepare for a very 
specialized career — anyone whose educational goals are not 
met by the College's other programs. Cooperative 
education options are available to students enrolled in 
Individual Studies. 

OBJECTIVES 

Upon completion of the Individual Studies Program the 
student will have developed one or more of the following: 

1. awareness of his/her academic and manual abilities and 
careers in which they can be applied. 

2. extensive knowledge of one or more subjects. 

3. technical skills in one or more areas and general 
knowledge in desired academic subjects. 

4. entry-level job skills in a paraprofessional or technical 
field. 

5. completion of courses required for the four-year 
program into which he/she intends to transfer. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

1. Successfully complete the College's graduation 
requirements for all Associate Degree Programs. (See 
pg. 127.) 

2. Successfully complete a minimum of sixty (60) credits 
of Associate Degree level course work: 

a. The 60 credit hours must include 12 credits of 
General Education Core courses (see page 80 for a

specified below: 

Communications 6 credits 

Mathematics or Statistics 3 credits 

Humanities OR Social Sciences OR 
Natural Sciences 3-4 credits 

b. Full-time students must complete four additional 
credits of Fitness & Lifetime Sports, bringing the 
total number of required credits to 64; part-time 
students may be exempted from this requirement. 

3. Complete all placement testing required by the College. 
Students must demonstrate basic mastery of English, 
reading, and mathematics through placement testing or 
through successful completion of appropriate courses 
(Developmental Studies courses) designed to provide 
basic skills and competencies in these areas. 

4. The student must complete a planned educational 
program of studies. 

This plan should be developed by the student and his 
or her advisor and be filed with the appropriate Division 
Director prior to the completion of eighteen (18) 
semester hours of credit. 



ASSOCIATE DEGREE AND CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS -83 



CURRICULUM POSSIBILITIES 

Students in Individual Studies select courses based almost 
entirely on their goals. Advisors work with students in 
designing programs and selecting the courses which will 
best meet their needs. It may take longer than two years to 
complete courses desired because of scheduling conflicts. 
This is particularly true for students who schedule 
laboratory or shop courses which require large blocks of 
time. 

A special Individual Studies option — in Respiratory Therapy 
Technician - is offered in cooperation with the Harrisburg 
Area Community College (See right). 

AN EXAMPLE OF A PLANNED INDIVIDUAL STUDIES 
PROGRAM 

A person may wish to enroll in the Individual Studies 
program to prepare for a particular occupational specialty. 
For example, someone who enjoys flower arranging and 
cooking might want to prepare to own and run a catering 
business. Courses could be selected from Food and 
Hospitality Management, Floriculture, Business, and related 
areas. One possible selection of 64 credits of course work 
follows: 

Food and Hospitality Management 

Quantity Food Preparation 

Menu Planning & Cost Control 

Purchasing, Storage & Sanitation 

Hospitality Merchandising 

Equipment & Layouts 

Personnel Management, Work Simplification 

Floriculture 

Floral Design I 
Floral Design II 
Flower Shop Operation 

Business 

Principles of Business 

Business Communications 

Accounting I 

Accounting II 

Small Business Management 

Business Mathematics 

Related 

Introduction to Mathematics I 
English Composition I 
English Composition II 
Fundamentals of Chemistry 
Fitness & Lifetime Sports 

Another student with this same career goal might choose 
to emphasize another area depending on interest and prior 
experience. For example, someone who had prepared food 
for many large parties in their own home might feel quite 
competent in the food area and wish to emphasize 
business courses. The exact combination of courses in the 
individual studies program is decided entirely by the 
individual, with the help of an advisor. 



Individual Studies Option

Certificate/16 months 



The Respiratory Therapy Technician option is offered in 
cooperation with the Harrisburg Area Community College. 
In addition to course work at The Williamsport Area 
Community College, students complete specialized 
respiratory therapy courses in Harrisburg. Clinical training is 
held at the Divine Providence and Williamsport Hospitals. 

The program prepares students for careers in respiratory 
therapy — which includes assisting in the treatment, 
management, control, diagnostic evaluation, and care of 
patients with defects and diseases of the pulmonary 
system (for example, asthma, cancer, emphysema). 
Students are required to earn a minimum grade point 
average of 2.00 and a minimum grade of "C" in each math 
and science course. 

Students seeking admission to this program must meet the 
general college admission requirements and be accepted to 
The Williamsport Area Community College. On or before 
March 1 of the academic year at The Williamsport Area 
Community College four students will be selected who will 
be permitted to complete the program at H.A.C.C. 

We recommend that students who require additional 
academic work, based on the results of the college 
placement tests, enroll in and complete the necessary 
courses prior to beginning this program. 

The Harrisburg Area Community College also offers an 
associate degree level program leading to registry eligibility.

Prospective students participate in an orientation 
program designed to introduce them to the college 
community and its various services and activities. 
Students also schedule the appropriate academic 
courses for their first semester. 



Advisement and Career Services Center 

The Advisement and Career Services Center is 
located in Room 157, Learning Resources Center, 
adjacent to the Library. Advisement and Career 
Services houses a wide variety of occupational and 
educational information, including pamphlets, 
booklets, film strips and other career library 
resources. Staff members are available to work with 
individuals as they use these materials and to provide 
counseling for those who need assistance in career 
decision making. Other services include programs in 
resume writing, interview training, and job search 
strategies. The Advisement and Career Services 
Center is open to both students and non-students. 

Staff are available to help students with personal, 
academic, and career problems. The staff (with 
assistance from special faculty advisors) also help all 
new students select courses. 
Advisors: Each student is assigned an academic 
advisor. The advisor is usually an instructor in the 
student's program area. Students should discuss 
academic concerns or problems with their advisor. 
Counselors: Counselors are available to aid students 
in resolving many types of problems. Such problems 
may involve social, emotional, vocational, and 
personal concerns. Any need or concern which is 
perceived by the student as important will be viewed 
in the same way by the counselor. Information 
shared with a counselor will be held in confidence. 



College Transfer 

The Advisement and Career Services Center also 
assists students who need advice about transferring 
to other educational institutions. Students who desire 
to transfer should start early to plan for this activity. 
The College has articulation agreements with 
numerous four-year colleges. 

Career Services 

Career services are designed to aid the prospective 
graduate seeking employment information. The 
Advisement and Career Services Center maintains a 
file of full-time job opportunities as well as addresses 
of prospective employers. A library of company 
literature and applications is maintained in the office 
for students' use. Information on full and part-time 
job openings is also published regularly in The 
SPOTLIGHT (student newspaper). 

The Advisement and Career Services Center 
schedules on-campus interviews for companies 
which come to the College to recruit prospective 
graduates. Companies recruiting on campus include a 
number of leading industries from across the country. 
On-campus recruitment usually takes place from 
September through December and from February 
through April. Information on these interviews is 
announced in The SPOTLIGHT and in the New Week 
News. 

Career services seminars are held each semester, just 
prior to graduation, for prospective graduates. During 
these seminars sample letters of application and 
resumes are distributed. Students learn how to 
prepare for job interviews and receive information on 
employment trends in various parts of the country. 
During the seminars, students also provide 
information for their placement cards at the College.

ACADEMIC INFORMATION-123 



ACADEMIC 
INFORMATION 

Classification of Students 

Full-Time: A full-time student is one who carries 12 
or more credits. Sixteen hours of lecture/ 
demonstration, or 48 hours of shop/lab, equal one 
credit. 

Part-Time: A degree or certificate candidate who 
carries fewer than 12 credits per semester is enrolled 
as a part-time student. 

Non-Degree: A non-degree student is one who is not 
enrolled in a degree or certificate program. Non- 
degree students can select courses without regard to 
degree or certificate requirements. Non-degree 
students are not eligible for financial aid. They are 
permitted to schedule classes on a first-come, first- 
served basis (after currently enrolled students have 
been given the opportunity to schedule classes). 
Non-degree students must complete an 'Admissions 
Application" form the first time they schedule 
classes, but are not required to pay the application 
fee. 

Special Student: A handicapped student who cannot 
meet some of the requirements in certain shop 
programs is awarded a special certificate. It is not 
awarded to a student who may have failed to meet 
the requirements of a certificate program. Students 
must notify the College-PRIOR TO BEGINNING A 
PROGRAM — if they want to complete only part of 
the program and earn a special certificate. Exceptions 
will be made only for a student who becomes 
handicapped while enrolled in a certificate program. 

Students age 18 or older who do not have a high 
school diploma or the equivalent may also be 
classified as "special students.". 

Satisfactory Progress: As long as a postsecondary 
student is officially enrolled and officially permitted 
to continue his/her studies toward a degree or 
certificate at the College, the student will be 
considered to be making satisfactory progress. 
Students receiving financial aid must meet additional 
criteria as explained in the Financial Aid section of 
this catalog (page 10) in order to continue to be 
eligible to receive financial aid. 

Scheduling/Registration 

Because the number of students who can register for 
any class is limited, scheduling times have been 
designated for students to schedule. It is in the 



student's best interest to have all financial 
arrangements made and the registration process 
complete before the announced Late Registration 
period to assure they have the schedule they need 
before classes begin. 

STUDENTS who are not considered officially enrolled 
will not be on the instructor's rosters and are not to 
attend classes until they have a computer-generated 
schedule identifying their courses as "officially 
registered". 

Course Selection and Graduation 
Requirements 

In cooperation with their advisors, students should 
schedule and register for the required courses listed 
for their degrees. Deviations from these requirements 
are acceptable only if formally aproved. Students 
intending to substitute a different course for a course 
required for graduation need to have an approved 
"Approval Form for Course Substitution/Equivalency" 
filed in the Student Records Office. To avoid 
graduation problems, students should file this form 
before the course begins. 

Credit Load 

The academic year is divided into Fall, Spring, May 
and June semesters. The Fall and Spring semesters 
are 16 weeks in duration. Summer sessions vary in 
length. For enrollment verification, a student is 
considered full-time during the summer if his/her 
credit load totals 12 or more credits. 

Academic Overload 

An academic/credit overload occurs when a student 
registers for more than 18 credits per semester. 
(Certain programs where a 19 credit load is required 
are not considered overloads.) 

Students wishing to schedule an overload must 
obtain permission from the Division Director of the 
program in which they are enrolled. A student must 
have earned a 3.00 cumulative grade point average 
or a 3.00 average the previous semester in order to 
qualify to schedule a credit overload. Exceptions 
must be approved by the Dean of Academic Affairs 
or his/her designee. 

Change of Schedule 

After a student is officially registered, changes to the 
schedule may be made through the process of 
adding and/or dropping. 

Dropping a Course: A student may drop a credit 
course during the first three weeks — or the first 20 
percent of instruction for short-term courses- 
completing, signing, and submitting a "Student 
Status Change Form". Both the student and the 
advisor must sign the form. Courses that are dropped 
do not appear on the student's transcript. After the 



124-ACADEMIC INFORMATION 



third week period, the student must have the 
instructor sign the form and issue a withdrawing 
grade which will appear on the transcript. (See 
section on "Terminations, Drops and Refunds". 

Adding a Course: A student may add a course during 
the first week of a 16-week semester. Signatures of 
the advisor and the student are required in adding a 
course. The approval of the Division Director of the 
course and the Associate Dean are required if a 
course is added after the first week of the semester. 

Change of Program 

A change of program may be made at any time 
during the official drop/add period of a semester. 
Changes made after that time will be effective the 
following semester. Currently enrolled students who 
wish to change from one program of study to 
another must follow the steps below. 

1. Complete an "Admission Application" and submit 
it to the Admissions Office. Acceptance into the 
new program will be based on availability of 
openings in the program. 

2. Complete a "Curriculum Change" form, obtain 
required signatures and submit the form to the 
Student Records Office. 

When a student changes his/her program, all credits 
earned in the prior program will be evaluated for 
transfer to the new program by the Registrar. All 
courses will continue to appear on the student's 
transcript. Only courses applicable to the new 
program will be used to calculate the student's new 
cumulative grade point average. 

Repeating a "D" or "F" Course 

Students may repeat a course in which they earned a 
grade of "D" or "F". However, they must improve the 
grade of the repeated course to affect their 
cumulative grade point average. If the student 
repeats the course at The Williamsport Area 
Community College and improves his/her grade, both 
grades will appear on the permanent record card 
with the higher grade used in calculating the 
cumulative grade point average. If the student 
repeats the equivalent course at another institution 
and transfers the course to the College (subject to 
Transfer Policy, see page 5), the original grade 
remains on the transcript but is not included in the 
semester or cumulative average. (The credits for the 
transferred course will not be used in calculating the 
student's cumulative grade point average.) If the 
student repeats a course and earns a second "D" or 
"F", the second grade and credits will not be used in 
calculating the cumulative grade point average. 

Auditing a Course 

Auditors are not required to prepare lessons or papers 
or take examinations, nor do they receive credit for 



the course. Students are charged full tuition for 
courses taken on an audit basis. 

With the consent of the instructor and the Dean of 
Academic Affairs, a student may enroll as an auditor 
in any course. 

Students must inform the Student Records Office 
that a course is being taken on an audit basis when 
they schedule. A student may not change from credit 
to audit status or from audit to credit status after the 
beginning of the semester. 



Grading System 

The College uses the following system of grading 
(4.00 basis) to indicate the quality of a student's 
work: 



Grade 


Interpretation 


Grade Points 


A 


Superior 


4 


B 


Above Average 


3 


C 


Average 


2 


D 


Below Average 


1 


F 


Failing Work 





W 


Withdrawn 


— 


WP 


Withdrawn Passing 


— 


WF 


Withdrawn Failing 





I 


Incomplete 


— 


AU 


Audit 


— 


SP 


Satisfactory Progress 


— 



An instructor may assign an "I", Incomplete, grade to 
give a student additional time to complete required 
course work if the student has missed an exceptional 
number of classes due to accident, illness or other 
extenuating circumstances. An Incomplete will not be 
used to extend the time a student has to complete 
class requirements beyond the normal allotted time. 

If a student is awarded a letter grade of "I", the 
instructor will submit an incomplete grade form with 
the student's grade roster. The form describes the 
work which must be completed and gives a deadline 
for completing the work. The deadline date will be 
before the end of the following semester. Copies of 
the incomplete grade form will be sent to the student 
and his/her advisor. A permanent "F" will be 
recorded if the work is not completed prior to the 
end of the following semester. 

"SP", Satisfactory Progress, is used for certain 
students in Developmental Studies courses. "SP", 
Satisfactory Progress, will be awarded if students do 
not complete all course requirements but do meet 
the requirements for "SP" as established in the 
syllabus for a particular developmental course. 
Students earning an "SP" will reenroll in the same 
course. Upon mastery of all course objectives, the 
student will earn a traditional letter grade (in the 
semester in which the course requirements were 
met). 



ACADEMIC INFORMATION-125 



Grade Reports 

At the midpoint of each fall and spring semester 
course a grade of "P" (Passing), "D" (Deficient), or 
"F" (Failing) is reported for each student officially 
registered in each course. Each grade is advisory 
only, indicating the quality of work up to that point in 
the semester. Midterm advisory grades do not 
become part of the student's permanent record. Final 
semester grades will be mailed after the end of the 
semester or summer session. The grade report will 
show all course work completed to date by the 
student. Students should check the cumulative grade 
report for accuracy and to be certain they are 
meeting graduation requirements. To protect the 
confidentiality of the student's record and in 
compliance with federal law, no grades will be given 
over the phone. 

Since the grade report is also an unofficial copy of 
their transcript, students may use their grade report 
when an unofficial transcript is required. (For 
information on obtaining official transcripts, see page 
9). 

Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) 

The student grade point average is computed on two 
bases — the semester and the cumulative average. It 
is a weighted average and is computed as follows: 
semester points earned (credits time grade worth) 
divided by semester total credits; total points earned 
for all courses divided by total credits. 

All courses taken since enrollment into the curriculum 
are included in the GPA. 

Withholding Grades 

A student's grades and records will not be released if 
the student has any outstanding loans or fines (for 
example, parking fines or library fines) at the College 
or if the student has outstanding obligations to the 
College for the return/replacement of items such as 
books, tools or equipment. When a hold is placed on 
a student's grades, the student will be notified in 
writing of the hold and of the action needed to 
release his/her grades or records. 

Advanced Placement Credit 

The Williamsport Area Community College believes 
that placing students at the proper educational level 
will contribute to the student's success in College. 

Advanced placement is designed to give students 
credit for the skills or competencies they have 
acquired prior to entering College. Students who have 
completed advanced courses in high school, in an 
area vocational technical school program, or as part 
of military training, and those with prior educational 
experiences may be eligible for advanced placement. 
We recommend that applications for advanced 
placement be submitted by March 15 for students 



who plan to enroll in the fall semester, by November 
15 for students who plan to enroll in the spring 
semester, and by April 15 for students who plan to 
enroll in the summer semester. 

Students from area vocational technical schools with 
which the College has Task Level Articulation 
Agreements can obtain advanced placement on the 
basis of an instructor-verified list of competencies. 
Such students must also take the College's reading, 
English and math placement tests as early as 
possible so that they can take developmental 
courses, if needed, in the summer before they begin 
their regular program. 

New students will receive a schedule of advanced 
placement test offerings showing the date and times 
when tests will be given. The student should indicate 
which test(s) he/she wishes to take and return the 
form to the appropriate Division office. 

A copy of the evaluation of the advanced placement 
test or other assessment will be sent to the student. 
A fee of $25 per course will be charged when credit 
from advanced placement testing is entered on the 
transcript.* Credit earned through advanced 
placement will be shown on the student's transcript 
after the fee is paid and the student has successfully 
completed one semester at the College. Up to a 
maximum of 30 credits may be granted through non- 
traditional credit evaluation (advanced placement, 
credit by exam, and work/life experience). Advanced 
placement credit is not used in calculating the 
student's cumulative grade point average. Only the 
course number, title, and number of credits will be 
entered on the transcript. No letter grades will be 
shown. 

*The $25 fee will not be charged for secondary 
students assessed externally and for certain 
developmental courses which are exempt. 

Credit By Exam 

Students may apply to take any College course by 
examination. In order to challenge a course by 
examination, a student must have completed at least 
12 credits at The Williamsport Area Community 
College and have earned a grade point average of 
2.00. Application to take a course by examination 
must be made in writing to the appropriate Division 
Director. Approval must then be given by the 
instructor(s) of the course involved and the Division 
Director. Students who decide to challenge a course 
after enrolling in it must arrange for testing to take 
place prior to the third week of instruction (or the 
equivalent). 

If approval is granted, a fee of $25 must be paid at 
the Bursar's Office prior to each examination. No 
examination will be prepared or administered until the 
student presents the $25 receipt. The examination 
fee will be waived for students seeking credit for ENL 
111 (English Composition I) or RDG 111 (College 



126-ACADEMIC INFORMATION 



Reading, Reasoning and Study Skills) as a result of 
outstanding performance in the respective 
developmental counterpart, i.e., ENL 011 (Basic 
English) or RDG 010 (Reading Improvement). 

The examination is prepared, administered (at the 
time set by the Division Director), and evaluated by 
the instructor(s) of the course. A copy of the result 
of the examination will be sent to the student. When 
a student passes the examination for the course, the 
course number, title, and number of credits only will 
be entered on the student's transcript. (No letter 
grades will be listed on the transcript.) A maximum 
of 30 credits may be earned through non-traditional 
credit evaluation (work and/or life experience, 
advanced placement, credit by exam). Credit by exam 
may not be used to remove a D, F, or WF grade. An 
examination in a specific subject may be taken only 
once. All exceptions to the above requirements must 
be approved by the Dean of Academic Affairs or 
his/her designee. 

Credit for Work and/or Life Experience 

The College recognizes that many individuals acquire 
rich academic and technical experiences through 
working and/or living in a particular situation. 
Students who have been accepted to the College and 
who feel their work or living experiences warrant 
consideration for academic credit should apply in 
writing to the Division Director responsible for the 
course(s) involved. The application must include 
evidence and rationale for granting credit. 

The Division Director will appoint a committee to 
assess the candidate's educational and work 
background. The student will be asked to document 
his/her work and life experiences and to show that 
the experiences are equal to a course(s) offered at 
the College. The committee will also interview the 
student. The committee will recommend the number 
of credits to be awarded. A fee of $25 per course 
will be charged for the evaluation of credit. 

A copy of the evaluation of work and/or life 
experience will be sent to the student. Credit earned 
through work/life experience will be shown on the 
student's transcript after he/she earns 12 credits at 
the College. Credit for work/life experience will not 
be used in calculating the student's cumulative grade 
point average. No letter grade will be listed on the 
student's transcript. Up to a maximum of 30 credits 
may be earned through non-traditional credit 
evaluation (work and/or life experience, advanced 
placement, credit by exam). All exceptions to the 
above requirements must be approved by the Dean of 
Academic Affairs or his/her designee. 

Cooperative Education 

Cooperative Education (co-op) offers students the 
opportunity to participate in supervised periods of 
relevant and meaningful employment. While on co-op 
assignment, students work as regular employees of 



the co-op employer, receive vocational counseling, 
and earn academic credit for knowledge and/or skills 
acquired from their work experience. Co-op may be 
elected to replace or supplement required courses in 
most programs. 

The following options are available to qualified 
students in most programs: 

1. Alternating Plan: Students rotate periods of full- 
time work and full-time on-campus study. 

2. Parallel Plan: Students work part time and attend 
regular classes during the same semester or 
summer session. 

3. Summer Plan: Students work full time during a 
summer session followed by a parallel plan co-op 
during one or more following semesters. 

4. Career Advancement Plan: Students attend college 
on a part-time basis while working either full or 
part time at their regular (not a "co-op") job. 
Designed for employed students. 

5. APCO (Advanced Placement with the Co-op 
Option): Students who have completed a related 
vo-tech program receive advanced placement and 
are encouraged to participate in part or full-time 
co-op while attending college. 

Variations of the above options are possible, 
depending upon job and College requirements. Co-op 
placements can range from eight weeks to a full 
semester or summer of 15-16 weeks. 

In order to participate in Cooperative Education, a 
student must have successfully completed a 
minimum of one full semester (12 credits) or its 
equivalent and must maintain a cumulative average 
of 2.00 or better. (A 2.50 average in courses related 
to the student's program is required.) 

The Dean of Academic Affairs or his/her designee 
may waive these requirements in the following 
situations: 

1. If the College determines that the student has 
acquired competencies— through previous training 
and/or experience— which are equivalent to those 
provided during one full semester of instruction at 
the College. 

2. When the student's cumulative average falls below 
the level required and/or recommended due to 
special circumstances. 

A student who is unable to meet and maintain either 
the behavioral or performance standards established 
for co-op employment may, with just cause, be 
withdrawn from co-op employment by either the 
employer or the College. 



ACADEMIC INFORMATION -127 



A student may withdraw or be withdrawn from co-op 
employment without penalty if— for any well-founded 
reason— the work site is deemed to be unsafe or if 
the level of work assigned does not meet the 
learning objectives established by the student and 
the College. 

Employer Participation 

Employers who can provide full-time or part-time 
positions which meet the following qualifications are 
encouraged to participate in the co-op program: 

1. The job must provide educational experiences in 
an area directly related to the student's course of 
study or career goals. 

2. The job must provide learning experiences that will 
be meaningful and challenging for the student. 

3. The job should be relatively secure in order to 
provide at least one or more full co-op work terms. 

4. The employer will cooperate with the College and 
the student in developing specific learning 
objectives for each work period. 

5. The employer will enter into a training agreement 
with the College and the student. 

6. At the end of the work experience, the employer 
agrees to evaluate the student's performance and 
progress toward meeting specific learning 
objectives. 

Specific information can be obtained directly from 
the student's academic division or by contacting:

Cross-Registration with Lycoming College 

The Williamsport Area Community College 
participates in a cross-registration program with 
Lycoming College. In order to cross-register for 
courses at Lycoming College, a Williamsport Area 
Community College student must obtain the 
permission of his/her advisor and division director, 
the Dean of Academic Affairs and the academic dean 
at Lycoming College. In order to participate in this 
program, students must: 

1. be enrolled on a full-time basis in a degree or 
certificate program. 

2. have completed at least 12 credits at The 
Williamsport Area Community College. 

3. have completed no more than 70 credits, including 
transfer credit, cross-registration credit, and non- 
traditional credit. 

4. have a current cumulative grade point average of 
2.00 or better. 



During the fall and spring semesters, students may 
register for two courses or one-half of their total 
semester credits (whichever is greater) through cross- 
registration. During any summer session, students 
participating in cross-registration must register for at 
least three credits at The Williamsport Area 
Community College and may register for only one 
cross-registration course. 

Students may cross-register only for courses not 
offered at The Williamsport Area Community College 
or for courses unavailable before the student's 
scheduled date of graduation. Students participating 
in cross-registration will be responsible for paying any 
special laboratory fees or charges required for the 
course. It is also the responsibility of the student to 
obtain all signatures on forms. 

Grades earned through participation in cross- 
registration will be recorded on the student's 
Williamsport Area Community College transcript. 
Courses completed with a passing grade ("D" or 
better) will be credited toward graduation. Grades 
earned in courses taken at Lycoming College will be 
included in the student's semester and cumulative 
average. Students who cross-register are responsible 
for complying with the academic calendar of the 
institution offering the course(s) they take. Cross- 
registration students should inform their advisors of 
any difficulties with, or plans to drop Lycoming 
College courses. Students may obtain additional 
information on cross-registration procedures from 
their advisors or the Student Records Office. All 
exceptions to the above requirements must be 
approved by the Dean of Academic Affairs or his/her 
designee. 

Graduation Requirements 

All entering students must exhibit competencies in 
the basic skills (reading, computation, and written 
expression) necessary for success in their programs. 
Students who have not demonstrated these 
competencies on the college placement tests are 
required to complete specific courses in order to earn 
a degree or certificate from The Williamsport Area 
Community College. 

Associate Degree 

The successful completion of a two-year program of 
study — identified as an Associate Degree program in 
this catalog — at The Williamsport Area Community

certificate, he/she may, with prior approval of the 
Dean of Academic Affairs or his/her designee be 
permitted to take up to six semester credit hours 
from another accredited college/institution to fulfill 
requirements for a degree or certificate from The 
Williamsport Area Community College. Such work 
must be completed within two years after the last 
semester in which the student attended classes at 
The Williamsport Area Community College. After two 
years, the student must reenroll at The Williamsport 
Area Community College. (See Reenrollment and 
Transfer Credit, pages 4 and 5.) Only grades of "C" 
or better are acceptable for such transfer credit. 
(Grades for transfer credits are not included in the 
student's cumulative grade point average.) 

All exceptions to graduation requirements must be 
approved by the Dean of Academic Affairs or his/her 
designee. 

Petition to Graduate: In order to graduate a student 
must report to the Student Records Office and 
complete a "Petition for Graduation" form during the 
first five weeks of classes of the semester in which 
the student intends to graduate. If this form is not 
submitted, the student's name will not appear on the 
Graduation Program. In addition, the student's final 
transcript will state that the student is a "non- 
returning" student, rather than a graduate. 

Students who meet graduation requirements in the 
summer will graduate at the end of the second 
summer session. 

Graduation Fees 

Any students who wish to receive an engraved 
diploma or certificate when they graduate must pay 
the diploma fee when they petition to graduate. 

If a graduating student does not wish to receive an 
engraved certificate or diploma, he/she will not be 
charged the diploma fee but must still file a petition. 

The Dean's Honor List 

The honor list is announced by the Dean at the 
completion of each semester. The list will include 
only those full-time students who have a semester 
grade point average of 3.50 or better. 



ACADEMIC INFORMATION -129 



Terminations from the College 

Student Initiated 

If a student decides to terminate enrollment from the 
College, the student must: 

I 1. Complete "Student Status Change" form. 
Otbain all signatures required on the form and 
process through the Student Records Office. 

2. Satisfactorily account for all property issued by the 
College. 

3. Settle all outstanding College obligations. 

Students who stop attending classes without 
completing the proper paperwork will receive a grade 
of "F" or "WF" for the semester. 

College Initiated 

The College reserves the right to terminate 
enrollment of a student under the following 
circumstances: 

1. Failure to satisfy agreed upon financial 
arrangements. 

2. Failure to attend— When an instructor determines 
that a student is not adequately meeting course 
objectives and has missed more than the 
equivalent of the class hours in one week of 
instruction, the instructor MAY recommend that 
the student be withdrawn from the class by the 
College. The College will withdraw a student from 
a course for excessive absences only after the first 
three weeks (or 20 percent of instruction). A grade 
of "WF" will be recorded on the student's 
transcript. 

3. Failure to demonstrate safe practices. 

4. Failure to meet requirements or to complete 
objectives in a given program. 

5. Conduct which is detrimental to the college or 
other students. 

Withdrawing Grades 

From the first day to the end of the 20 percent 
period of a course, dropping a course results in no 
grade. 

From the 20 percent of the course to the end of the 
tenth week of class or the 60 percent period of the 
class, a "W" grade is issued which does not impact 
the GPA but does appear on the transcript. 

From the 60 percent period to the last day of the 
course, a grade of "WP" or "WF" appears on the 
transcript. A withdraw passing has no impact on the 
grade whereas a withdraw failing impacts the 
transcript the same as an "F". 



Tuition Refunds 

Students dropping courses prior to the first day of 
the course are entitled to 100 percent of the monies 
they have paid. From the first day of class to the end 
of the 20 percent period of the class, the student is 
entitled to a 70 percent refund of the monies paid. 
Dropping a course or terminating from College does 
not satisfy a financial obligation between the student 
and the College. 



Student Conduct 

On admission to The Williamsport Area Community 
College you accept unqualified commitment to 
conduct yourself at all times, both on and off the 
campus, in a responsible manner which conforms 
with the generally accepted standard of adult 
behavior. It is expected that you will show courtesy 
and respect for the administrative officers, faculty, 
and employees in your personal contacts. You must 
also understand and accept the necessity for various 
College regulations and comply with the directives of 
those authorized to enforce the regulations. If you 
conduct yourself in a manner contrary to the best 
interests of the College you will be subject to such 
penalties as the circumstances justify, including 
suspension or expulsion. Additional information 
regarding student conduct on campus and student 
judicial procedures is available in the Student 
Handbook. All students are expected to read and 
follow the policies in the handbook. 

A student may be suspended or dismissed for 
improper conduct, failure to comply with College 
regulations, academic dishonesty, habitual absences, 
lack of effort and interest, possession of, or being 
under the influence of alcoholic beverages or illegal 
drugs, or under other circumstances as determined 
by the Board of Trustees. 

If all cases where academic dishonesty is 
established, the student may be dropped from the 
course with a grade of "F". For a second offense, the 
student may be dismissed from the College. In a case 
involving a question of academic dishonesty, the 
professor in whose class the incident is alleged to 
have occurred will consult with the appropriate 
Division Director regarding disciplinary action. 

Attendance Policy 

1. Regular and prompt attendance at all classes and 
at scheduled conferences with instructors is 
expected of all students. All work missed because 
of absence, regardless of the cause, must be made 
up to the satisfaction of the instructor. Students 
who know that they will be absent are expected 
to get assignments from instructors in advance so 
that the necessary work will be completed before 



130-ACADEMIC INFORMATION 



the student leaves, or immediately upon his/her 
return. This applies to absences for College 
activity trips as well as absences for other 
reasons. In all cases of anticipated absence, 
students should confer with their instructors in 
advance whenever possible. 

2. All faculty are required to record attendance daily. 

3. When a student, in the instructor's judgment, is 
not adequately meeting the course objectives and 
has missed more than the equivalent of the class 
hours held in one week of instruction, the 
instructor MAY recommend the student be 
withdrawn from class by the College. 

If, in the judgment of the instructor, extenuating 
circumstances are involved (e.g., a death in the 
family, hospitalization, illness, or serious accident), 
the following alternatives are available to the student. 

a. To arrange with the instructor's approval a 
stated plan for meeting course objectives and 
responsibilities. If completion of the approved 
plan extends beyond the semester, the student 
can receive an "I" grade (Incomplete). 

b. Until the end of the tenth week, or equivalent, 
of each term, the student can withdraw and 
receive a "W" grade (Withdrawn). 

4. Based upon the instructor's recommendation, a 
decision to withdraw a student from a course MAY 
be made by the appropriate Division Director. 
Withdrawal from a course by the College for 
excessive absences will only be done after the first 
three weeks of each term or 20 percent of 
instruction and will be recorded on the student's 
transcript as a "WF" (Withdrawn Failing). 

5. Appeal Process: Students who are withdrawn from 
a course by the College may appeal the decision 
within three school days of notification. 

The student may appeal the decision to either the 
Dean of Academic Affairs OR the Ad Hoc 
Academic Policy Group consisting of the Dean of 
Academic Affairs, President of the Student 
Government Association, and Chairperson of the 
Academic Standards and Policy Committee. 

Academic Probation 

Any degree or certificate candidate whose 
cumulative grade point average is below 2.00 will be 
placed on academic probation. A student on 
probation may be required to report to the 
Advisement and Career Services Center for special 
counseling before registering for classes the following 
semester. 



A student may be terminated from the College if 
his/her cumulative grade point average is under 1.50 
at the end of the first semester's work, under 1.80 at 
the end of the second semester's work, or under 
1.90 at the end of the third semester of work. (A 
semester's work is generally defined as the courses 
listed for a semester in a given program, or 15 credits 
of course work.) The Probation Committee will 
determine the semester status in special situations. 

The Probation Committee meets at the end of each 
term. The Committee determines the conditions 
under which students with grade point averages 
below 2.00 will be permitted to continue at the 
College. The Committee may also terminate students. 
Students who are terminated may appeal the action 
to the Chairperson of the Probation Committee or 
his/her designee. 

Final Examinations 

Final examinations may be scheduled by instructors 
at the end of each semester. A student who is 
absent from a final examination without good reason 
is subject to a failing grade. 

Developmental Studies Program 

The open admissions policy of The Williamsport Area 
Community College permits most students to enroll 
in the programs of their choice. However, all entering 
students must exhibit competencies in the basic 
skills (reading, mathematics, and written expression) 
necessary for success in their programs. Students 
who have not demonstrated these skills on the 
college placement tests must take specific 
developmental courses before enrolling in other math 
and English courses required for a degree or 
certificate from The Williamsport Area Community 
College. 

The College will award institutional credit for 
developmental studies courses (courses numbered 
001-099) and the grades earned in those courses will 
be included in the student's grade point average. 
Three developmental courses — RDG 111, CHD 100, 
and CHD 101 — carry elective credit and may be used 
to fulfill a general elective requirement. 
Developmental courses with institutional credit may 
not replace any course requirement or elective. 

The Developmental Studies program is designed to 
serve a variety of students: 

— those who lack academic skills and requirements 
for the curriculum of their choice 

— the "non-traditional" student 

— unemployed adults 

— adults returning to school after a number of years 
of absence 



ACADEMIC INFORMATION-131 



high school dropouts 

veterans 

those students referred to the program by 

instructors who recognize a need for one or more 

of the program's services 

those who require assistance and solicit the 

program services on a "walk-in" basis. 

The program consists of courses in math, reading, 
English, personal development and decision-making. 

Students may enter the entire program or part of it 
as the result of counseling, placement tests, 
academic record, or personal choice. While in the 
program, most students will also take courses in their 
curriculum. One strength of the program is the 
frequent contact with staff who assist the student 
with course selection, problem solving, decision 
making, career planning. 

Classwork is designed to promote a successful 
teaching-learning atmosphere. Varied learning 
strategies, individualized and self-paced instruction, 
small group sessions, tutorial and media support are 
characteristic of the course work. 

College Opportunity Programming (COPing) 

This program, funded under the Equal Education 
Opportunity legislation, Act 101, serves students who 
are academically and financially disadvantaged. 
COPing students are chosen on the basis of their 
academic potential, motivation and aspirations. 
Students receive counseling and tutoring assistance 
as part of the COPing program. 

The COPing Program also includes a four-week 
summer orientation. Students are in classes studying 
reading, math and English, and in shops and labs 
acquiring "hands-on" experience. During the four- 
week program, students learn about the campus, the 
College, the staff, the faculty, and each other. This 
pre-college session makes the first semester easier 
and more meaningful for students.

SECONDARY VOCATIONAL PROGRAM -133 



SECONDARY 

VOCATIONAL 

PROGRAM 



The Williamsport Area Community College is the only 
community college in the state to offer secondary 
vocational education. The College's Secondary 
Vocational Program is a unique example of what 
school districts and a community college can provide 
for their students and their communities. 

The Secondary Vocational Program at The 
Williamsport Area Community College provides 
education and training to high school students who 
want to prepare for employment following graduation 
as well as those who plan to pursue advanced 
education or training. High school students enrolled 
in the program spend one-half of the school year (on 
a nine-week alternating schedule) at their home high 
schools where they complete the academic courses 
required for high school graduation and the other half 
of the school year attending vocational/technical 
classes at the College. 

The Secondary Vocational Program offers a 
combination of classroom work and practical 
experience. Students work in the College's shops and 
labs to learn and practice the skills they will need 
when they begin working. Senior year students may 
gain additional experience through participation in the 
cooperative education program. 



Graduates who want to continue their education at 
the college-level in the same field of study may be 
granted advanced placement credit for the skills and 
competencies acquired in the program. 

The College also provides a Senior Year Options 
program for high school students. This program 
offers qualifying students the opportunity to begin 
college-level work in selected technical programs as 
high school seniors.

ABOUT THE COLLEGE 

College Philosophy 

We believe in the dignity and worth of all individuals. We believe 
learning is a lifelong process and that all individuals should have 
opportunities for lifelong education. We believe education should help 
individuals develop, to their maximum capacity, technical excellence, 
occupational proficiency, and academic ability. We believe education 
should also provide for personal enrichment. To prosper in a complex and 
changing society, we believe individuals must learn to think 
independently, value logical and tested conclusions, develop problem 
solving abilities, and function effectively with other people. We believe 
that competent performance contributes significantly to individual health 
and happiness and benefits the organizations and communities in which 
individuals work and live. We believe the College is an integral part of the 
community it serves and must respond to identified needs and interests. 
In delivering education services, we believe there is no substitute for the 
pursuit of excellence. 

College Mission 

The Williamsport Area Community College is a public two-year 
comprehensive community college with strong heritage and continuing 
emphasis on vocational-technical skills and knowledge. The College 
serves primarily the state-designated, 10-county Northcentral Pennsylvania 
area. Because of the extensive commitment to hands-on occupational 
programming, the College also serves as a regional, national, and 
international resource. 

The College seeks to implement its philosophy by providing: 
•quality postsecondary occupational and transfer programs and 

services for all those who can benefit, including those who have 

previously discontinued their formal education; 
•quality vocational-technical programs and services for area 

secondary students; 
•accessible full and part-time educational opportunities and services 

which address a wide spectrum of individual needs and abilities 

through varied formats, schedules, geographic locations, and short- 
term courses; 
•educational programming related to economic and employment 

realities; 
•additional and enriched career options through cooperation with 

industrial, business, professions, government, and other educational 

institutions; 
•comprehensive programs which integrate communications, math, 

science, humanities, interpersonal skills, reasoning, and physical 

health and safety; 
•opportunity to develop skills needed to enter and succeed in 

programs; 
•continuing opportunities to extend and upgrade skills, knowledge, 

and interests; 
•support for informed decisions using knowledge of abilities, interest, 

and values realized through testing, evaluation and counseling, as 

well as instruction; 
•opportunities to develop personal, social, and cultural dimensions. 

The College affirms that excellence in instruction at reasonable 
student cost is its highest priority. The College is accountable for its 
mission within the limitations of its physical and financial resourses.
